Is anyone going to address the issue of the protected religious scholars and clerics in Saudi Arabia who give and export the extremist literal interpretation of the Koran that provides the religious and theoretical underpinning to both ISIS and al-Qaeda?
From a Confusionist perspective the bigger story is how the the Western ally Saudi Arabia is given the cover to allow the germination of this theoretical basis for the slaughter of other Muslims and anyone else of another faith or no faith. The Western powers do not even address this issue. It must be asked if they really want “terrorism” to go away or not. And once again the mainstream media is complicit in covering this up by failing to report on it and to go off into tangents of it being about Syria only. This is a country where Kurds, Shia, moderate Sunnis, Christians and Secularists are fighting against an ISIS takeover. We have a timely reminder of how the powers that control use their control of propaganda to create veils that cloak the truth even or maybe particularly when it means death and destruction on a massive scale.
It is once again obvious that perpetuating fear, ignorance and hatred and hence control is at the top of the agenda. It is equally obvious that the root theoreticians of terror are now protected in Western supported dictatorships. But through it all via the new and still relatively uncontrolled technological media, broadly described as social media, individuals across the globe are increasingly noticing.
Well the small team at Confusionism are still around and still have some plans, but have little time right now. So it is just time to say have a great new year and don’t find stupid reasons to not enjoy yourselves. Go party.
And next year, yes we do have some plans to add some more artwork and update the theory posts. As confusionists, we do not think it necessary to tell you what ius going on, but to let you work it out yourselves via the confusionist tools and analyses that have been discussed many times. So we will not waste our or your time in 2015 analysing what is described as news in the media industry of control and on
In the meantime though it is time to party, so share a little drink with us. After all partying is a real human action.
Happy New Year.
The Absolusionist is now being worked on and will be released when completed. It will be a novel length piece of writing. However, in line with Confusionist thought on literature, it will not follow any of the industry created rules for defining a novel by industry standards. The Absolutionist will also fall within the notion of fragmentary writing or vignettive writing as described by Confusionists.
The Absolutionist will be the first novel length piece of writing by G. We will post more announcements here as this work develops.
The Confusionism theme has been updated to give it a new more modern look and much of the sidebar clutter has been removed. It should also make the site easier to navigate.
If anyone has any comment on this change, please let us know.
The personal and professional website of one of the founders of Confusionism is now up.
The site Graham Lawrence covers his publishing, editing, training, teaching and administrative work rather than his confusionist thought and philosophy. However, if you want to know a little more about one of the creators of confusionism or would like to see another side of him, this site should be of use.
He is also the founder of the the online English literature journal Eastlit. This journal was the first journal dedicated to English literature and artwork from or connected to East and South East Asia.
With Bryn Tennant he jointly first postulated the Confusionist philosophy. Graham and Bryn also jointly founded Eastlit although Bryn later left that project.
The allegoric artwork of confusionist photo-artist Sinlaratn Soontornviset is featured on the cover of the February 2014 issue of Eastlit.
Well the team at confusionism who have not been that active in 2013, would like to wish all our readers a Happy New Year.
This has been the year of Edward Snowden exposing the very tings that confusionists have warned of in the past half decade. Kudos to Mr. Snowden.
In other areas the confusionism team is concentrating more on artistic ventures including the online journal Eastlit. This is the first journal aimed at English literature and visual artwork from or connected to East and South East Asia.
There seems to be lots going on over at Eastlit at the moment.
A movement away from just written literature to a more multimedia experience of literature and art. For those of you that do not know, Eastlit is the first online journal for English literature from or connected to East or South East Asia.
Details re-blogged from them below.
This is a recommended writers group:
The International Writers’ Group (IWG) is for anyone anywhere in the world, writing in English. IWG also actively encourages non-native writers to be part of the community. This is an open democratic community for writers and readers where sharing, support and discussion are welcome. Join and participate as much or as little as you want.
The International Writers Group is a Google+ community, which means you need a free Google+ account.
Fragmentary writing will be part of the discussion among other styles in this group.
Eastlit, the English Literature journal and website covering East and South east Asia is featuring Soontornviset’s Lifetime on its front cover. Go Eastlit March 2013 Issue. More of Soontornviset’s work can be found on this site on her own page: Soontornviset’s Photo Art.
Congratulations to her.
